Respecting Different Play Styles: Don’t Be a Scrub.

by | October 9th, 2011 |

Far too many times in gaming have I seen people complain about how their opponent plays.  Not that they are using an insanely overpowered character (Broken), using a mod to exploit the game, or even a known problem the developers missed  and will update to fix (Universally accepted  broken glitches); they choose to complain solely […]

by | October 7th, 2011 |

With the final iteration of Gears of War (at least within the main series) Gears 3 wanted to help new players to the series not feel overwhelmed by the wall-bouncing Gnasher shotgun experts that have honed their skills in the last two games.  However, did Epic go too far? In this article, I want to […]

When most people think about “Mortal Kombat“, they think about gruesome game play that pushed video games to their limits with it’s violence, and showed just how much people enjoyed mutilation.  The “Fatality” is easily one of the most memorable moments of gaming history, marked by it’s now common initiating phrase, “Finish Him“. Mortal Kombat […]

by | January 21st, 2011 |

(Princess Peach Toadstool and Morrigan Aensland drawn by “Twilit-Arawen” check out his deviantART) For years I’ve been a fan of Nintendo and CAPCOM; they’ve spawned some of the greatest games that has ever seen the face of this earth.  I’ve loved titles from both sounds, each one outlining memories that resonate throughout my childhood.  Some […]
